>> multiple injuries that are consistent with being run over by a motor vehicle. those injuries she received, she was alive at the time. >> in this new report, the city says wait a minute. if she were alive, then how come the coroner found no foam in the trachea or lung tissues of the deceased? if she were alive, the city argues, she would have breathed in one or more of those items. the city knows she was ejected from the plane just like two other passengers who were right next to her, both of whom died. >> so the san mateo county coroner's decision was faulty. >> the attorney says the city is likely building its defense against the wrongful death lawsuit already filed by the girl's family. >> the girl was already dead. and therefore, that as tragic as it was that her body was mutilated, the fire engines did
not cause her death and therefore, she has no claim against the city and county of san francisco. >> so, who is correct about how she died? this is the sort of question that could get answered by a jury if it ever gets that far. but attorney tells me these type of cases are usually settled. live in the newsroom, kpix5. >> a tricky rescue tonight after a man plunged about 30 feet off a cliff at china camp state park. san rafael firefighters and a coast guard helicopter hoisted him to safety using a long line and rescue basket. another helicopter transported him to the hospital. >> right now it's below tide, so it's rocky. the best access for us was to use the long line from the coast guard, which brought the patient up to the parking lot where we loaded him up in cal star and the flight nurses and paramedics provided advance flight support. >> fire officials say he was

coming from the hills and they talk to each other and they know it's an easy target. >> since september, there have been six burglaries within two tenths of a mile of today's. the m.o. is similar. a kicked in door usually happening not long after rush hour. victim is expected to be okay. though she gave neighbors and her family quite a scare. >> i saw the paramedics carry her out on a chair, place her on the gernie and put the gernie in an ambulance. >> it's not just the burglaries in the weeks since september, we are also talking about several armed robberies in this neighborhood in that same time frame, some during those early morning post rush hour hours. of course, detectives here in oakland still looking for the suspect in this case. live in oakland, andrea, kpix5. >> oakland mayor had her car windows smashed while she was at a community meeting.
